Karitane Mothercraft Nurse, Sleep Consultant
Dorothy Waide started her training as a Karitane Mothercraft Nurse in New Zealand in the 1970s and went on to look after the babies of several well-known celebrities. She is now one of the world’s most sought-after baby sleep consultants. With over 30 years of baby nursing and sleep-settling experience, her uncanny ability to calm even the most fractious crying baby or toddler sets her apart as one of today’s most respected baby consultants. Dorothy believes nurture is central to giving the babies their very best start in life and takes a holistic approach to her work, embracing individual families’ needs, environments and lifestyle. When babies are not eating, sleeping or adjusting, it is easy to become overwhelmed and not know what to do. Dorothy has helped and supported thousands of families in New Zealand and around the world, sharing her knowledge and skills.
Dorothy spent more than 20 years abroad but returned to New Zealand in 2010 to set up her unique BabyHelp consultancy, dedicated to teaching new mums the timeless art — and everyday parenting skills — of mothercraft.
As an author, Dorothy’s first book: You Simply Can’t Spoil a Newborn: the essential Kiwi guide to nurturing your baby in the first three months is on the New Zealand top ten bestseller list.

To see Dorothy in action, take a look at the videos within the course: on feeding, settling, bathing and changing, swaddling, and burping. Dorothy will serve on our advisory board and plans on assisting us with expanding our market to ensure that new and existing parents get the information they need for the greatest adventure of all, parenthood.
